Work on the Auburn apartment building is wrapping up this fall with the building's first residents set to move in within a few weeks.
Construction on the 58-unit apartment building began about a year ago at the corner of Cass and Canfield avenues in Midtown. The developers, The Roxbury Group
, have signed on Center City Detroit to handle leasing and the building is now taking its deposits from its first residents.
"We expect to start moving in people in late October," says Michael Martorelli, sales and leasing manager for the Auburn. He adds that 128 people have put their names on a list to get one of the building's apartments. "We expect to be filled up by the time we start moving people in," he says.
The Auburn is a 3-story apartment building composed of four studios and 54 one-bedroom apartments. Prices at the new construction project range from $700 for a studio to $900 for a one-bedroom apartment.
Construction workers on the project have been plugging away at an accelerated pace over the last few months. Martorelli says they are now painting the units and installing the appliances. The ground-floor retail spaces are set to be ready before December.
"They're in the final stretch to get the units ready," Martorelli says.
